at ten pm moscow time shocking video of alleged war crimes emerges appearing to show syrian rebels executing government troops. america's record military budgets off topic because the presidential candidates resume campaigning in the aftermath of superstorm sandy. ukase deputy pm warns the country could become isolated inside the e.u. now after rebel lawmakers voted to cut the brussels budget polls show many britons will think that do you view. hello than a very good evening to you this is our team when i was kevin know in the first this
evidence of brutality by syria's rebel fighters has been branded shocking by human rights organizations and the u.n. says the killings of syrian soldiers if confirmed constitutes another war crime online footage appears to show the summary execution of twenty eight syrian troops in the north now this video can't be independently verified but it is seemingly of rebels beating and kicking the soldiers some of whom were wounded before shooting the dead. china is calling for a phased ceasefire and a gradual power transition in syria the united states plans to get greater influence for frontline militants the president of the arab lawyers association told us washington would back anyone to get it. there has been similar incidents on many occasions but at that time when the usa was having a different view than it has now they were saying it's all committed by the regime now not suggesting that the regime does not commit these crimes. to me both sides
are doing this but this particular one it is a war crime in any event shooting people after this and specially without the people is a war crime in law both domestic and international and i think this should be viewed in that light the western states especially the usa and france where willing to probably sacrifice half the population of syria to get rid of the regime they were not choosy in there and they're backing anybody anybody who actually pause. on a fire which is burning is actually participating in the crowd this is what the u.s. is doing this is what france europe and the u.k. are doing and this is the reason why for instance kofi annan and the the mission he said if you want to change the regime go and do it if you want to me to stop the killing then stop putting the trial on the fire this is what the letter brahimi is facing now and the second attempt to try and stop the killing but i think the
western nations they are talking one way and acting in another way but i think what is amazing it when the secretary of state of the usa has dramatically changed its position when they were pushing all the world to recognize the council as the lest the only one which represents the syrian people now they've decided it doesn't but i think now they're changing the rules of the game britain's deputy prime minister is warning rebel lawmakers they could leave britain isolated within the e.u. conservative m.p.'s or in the governing coalition sided with the opposition and define prime minister david cameron by voting for cuts to the money britain hands over to brussels every year on his or smith. out hanging over the houses of parliament could this be the beginning of the end of britain's membership of the european union pro europe deputy prime minister nick clegg certainly seems to fear so he's said that wednesday's rebellion by conservative m.p.'s when they voted in
favor of cutting the budget the e.u. could leave britain either isolated inside the union all out of it altogether that will be music to the is of many who support leaving the e.u. the money britain contributes has become a huge burden of contention while brussels encourages e.u. member countries to tighten their belts it doesn't appear to be tightening its own and in fact if the e.u. commission gets its weight britain will be forced to pay an extra one point three billion pounds next year in budget contributions on top of the eleven billion we already pay and we'd soon be handing over a staggering twenty two thousand pounds a minute to brussels david cameron has promised till negotiate a deal that means u.k. contributions would rise only in line with inflation but that's proven not good
enough this week with rebels in his own party demanding a real terms cards in cash going to the e.u. there's a summit in brussels to discuss the budget towards the end of the month and this could all push cameron into taking a tougher stance which could end in annual budget negotiations with the union and eventually what nick clegg fears but many support a slide out of the e.u. altogether. the last time the british public voted on being part of europe was back in one hundred seventy five hundred joined up to what was then the european economic community here were people not all told this is high time people got another chance to to choose. britain actually i was of the states which is in the currency we pay to the tune of around fifty million pounds a day just to be members of our club doesn't take into account the mega amounts of money the street tens of billions it costs us to comply with the e.u.
directives and regulations of its bed and some of the british people it's something we know happy about it's something which we want a referendum on if you look at recent opinion polls eighty percent of people want a referendum around sixty percent of people actually want to leave the european union altogether so the people are certainly moving away the political class structure motherhood i mean the problem that you've got is the austerity doesn't exist in the european union and might exist in the member countries where we're asking to cut back on almost everything we have realized that if the out the money doesn't. matter they spend more and more every single year the budget goes all the member states including states such as greece and portugal and ireland who would in serious trouble will be asked to put their hands in their pockets and give most apostles it's wrong seventeen years it is now since the accounts of concerns of look if the european union was a company then the directors on the chief executive would all be in jail but it's not it's corrupt and that's another reason why the british people want that referendum and want to leave. paul nettle there british media reporting that the
u.k. is on standby to send warplanes to the persian gulf the jets would be stationed in the united arab emirates just a couple of hundred kilometers from iran they're somewhere out there with antiwar activists in london jungle even and the the u.a.e. apparently wants a bolstered british military presence there now given iran's recent threats to block all shipments through the strait of hormuz and the huge drama that would incur will u.k. fighter jets secure or indeed destabilize the gulf well i think it's apparent would destabilize the situation and this is not the first report we've heard all western increased deployments in the area there's been a whole spate of them in recent weeks and months which all point in the same direction of increased u.s. british and western nations deploying a great deal more than the normal commitment to the to the gulf area not big enough in. in normal times no bridges most of defenses saying it readily deploys planes in
the u.a.e. it's not of the concerns about iran's nuclear program nonetheless that i guess it you've got to ask is it a wise move at this sensitive time do you yes i mean i think we're coming to a decision point here i think many people understand but the condition of the western stance towards both syria and iran is shaped by the u.s. presidential elections they are about. we know the new western syrian opposition group is supposed to be united on the day of the us elections and i think that whoever wins the presidential election of the united states we can expect. in respect of iran to move much more quickly after that as well yeah i mean if those players did arrive how would react you think. well it's bound to increase the sense of isolation by him to increase the sense that huge economic as we know from the sanctions regime diplomatic and military force is
ready for deployment against iran of course still must be noted must know they're there israeli defense minister said in london only this week that iran does not pull back from its alleged nuclear weapons program so begs the question why this apparent escalation from other countries at this time yes i think we've seen a very complex series those sort of moves counter moves bluff statements and so forth in the course of the u.s. elections or by the exact timing and about relations between israel and the united states over any attack on iran but as i say i think that process is about to come when we we read stories that the israelis and the u.s. have now come to an agreement about a time scale within which they must deal with iran so that's going to happen today after the u.s. elections but i do think that things will move on and we'll be clear exactly what the program of deploying further pressure on the iranian regime is in a week or so is time and of course there's also this big issue of you can have it
or we can have it you can't activists accusing the british foreign secretary william hague a double standards on iran's nuclear program he never mentioned israel's alleged stockpile when he met his israeli counterpart why does it never come up in official talks. well i think we all understand what the imperial structure of the of the middle east is and that is that the western powers britain and america with the support britain and other western european powers believe that it has an absolute right to control this area of the globe and it employs the israeli state has its watchdog in the in the area so the israeli state is always beyond criticism always beyond reproach always given unqualified support by the united states and bar by britain and and some of them some of the most pros are statements have been made by the current british prime minister david cameron really really briefly john i got thirty seconds the british defense secretary says europe must be ready to play a bigger role in north africa the middle east does the region really need the ukase
involvement right now well i think at any any century any hundred years that opened up with the sox because agreement that is an agreement by british politicians on a french diplomat to draw the borders of the middle east we look at one hundred years of that history has looked like in terms of destabilization mystery exploitation invasion and war and you have to conclude that it is long overdue for the west to keep out of the race who appreciate your time thanks for an r.t. international. no mention of military money as the u.s. presidential candidates resume complaining in the aftermath of the storm coming up we look at the legacy of america's foreign wars and how it affects his finances as well as his people plus to see roy fail to get their claws into copyright in the wake of the cathedral stunt it's a bid to make big bucks from the brands being thrown out we go plates for you we'll update you just a couple of minutes. what's
the difference between a samurai sword and a blind guys walking stick well known if you're one of the cops in northern england an elderly blind architect with taser in the back because his cane looks like a sword that was used in a nearby crime honest mistake because sorts are often tubular and use this walking sticks more and more we hear stories like this like the handcuffed youth who is shot in the back to death or the unarmed guy in a wheelchair who got blown away by the boys in blue i understand that being in the police is rough everyone lies to you and any given day you could be shot dead so i get it when after a long police chase someone just snaps and in all honesty fire when the police might do the same thing but it takes
a certain kind of person who enjoys abusing their uniform to make the helpless suffer you can't tolerate sadists or those with napoleon complexes in the police and you know what they aren't that hard to spot in the shower because if you like to tase the elderly or shoot wheelchair bound people then you probably don't have much of a certain something but that's just my opinion. will two parties keep us politics a one way street. or will new voices disrupt the power power alone. cause if america changes trunks to a selection of clothes god monday nov fifth one or two.

an overthrow the regime for instance. absolutely not fair given to jail someone for voicing their opinion this violates freedom of expression a right guaranteed by the international covenant on civil and political rights article nineteen article ten of the european convention on human rights article thirteen of the american convention on human rights as well as article nine of the african charter on human rights and other words did violate any standard of democracy around the world calling up and asking this question all week to our various guests we've got a notable learned guest in september bahrain promised to improve its human rights but on record to do it in line with those u.n. recommendations to improve the political activists for example there's not much evidence of that happening still is there. no there is no improvement at all except
that the regime has learned to play the world's media like the wild they claim they record human rights they claim they're instituting dialogue with the opposition they claim all sorts of changes are just rosy in bahrain meanwhile they continue the crackdown they continue the torture they continue to daily and they continue to kill millions in bahrain because they know that the united states is silent right now and taken it and then i just saw the united states does want bahrain doesn't it has been some movement doesn't want bahrain to start talks with the opposition until now washington had been quite right but is it the fact that now maybe finally it is telling its attention to the crackdowns on dissent. it will after the election everything's been on hold here in the united states because the election and the contention between the republican romney and the sitting president barack obama has meant that the taken a backseat but should iraq obama be reelected then i think you will see some

so when they keep talking about how they're going to supply jobs increasingly that's where the jobs come from. both foreign interventions and also this giant so-called homeland security department price of defending the homeland critics say continues to come at a grave cost to civil liberties this war on terror you know what led to what we discussed before the n.b.a. now you have north carolina's police you know cracking down on protesters now you have this massive empire and in order to sustain there you need to have peace. to make sure that the war machine reaches our earlier this year the former cia director applauded president obama for closely following the controversial policies of his part assessor and despite a campaign that was based upon a very powerful promise of transparency president obama and again in my view quite correctly. has used the state secrets argument in
a variety of courts as much as president bush more than six and a half thousand u.s. soldiers have been killed fighting america's post nine eleven wars and nearly fifty thousand have been wounded in action a reported quarter million americans who have fought in iraq or afghanistan have been diagnosed with mental health injuries from combat service even as america's wars wind down the suicide rate among troops has surged to a thirty year high according to the pentagon this year's total may reach as many as one suicide per day it's not just what happens in war the deaths and injuries or what happens afterwards you know you have these there are basically betters coming home you know to two broken communities and families with. moms and all this in terms of as a society is that something that wants you know do we want as a society where we have important members of our communities in the coming
